This is going to be my first year cooking a turkey! WaHOOOOOOOO!
Will it look like this beauty above? Hmmmm...most likely, no. But will it taste amazing? Yes! Will the meat fall off the bones and melt in my mouth. Yes again! I am cooking for my in-laws and I am determined to make them the best turkey dinner they have ever had!
So...here is what I've been told: put one stick of butter and an apple inside the turkey and cook it for 12 hours at 250 degrees. Anyone done this before? My friend Trisha says it's the best way to do it. I'm tempted to try the Martha Stewart recipe, which is a brined turkey and requires cheese cloth, but I am also thinking that maybe I should keep it simple for my first attempt. And I am without a doubt going to make Jenni's stuffing recipe!
Amy suggestions from those experienced in the field of turkey roasting?
But, regardless of how the turkey turns out, I plan to look dang cute while I'm cookin' it... in my new Emmeline Apron. :)
Isn't that cute? I've been wanting to make myself an apron for a while, so I'll be sure to take a picture of mine when it's all finished. I might add some ruffles... and heck, maybe I'll make two aprons...
...and give one away next week for our
ONE YEAR BLOGGIVERSARY!
